In 2016, Škoda decided to open up to new markets by introducing its first big SUV, the Kodiaq. With an attractive starting price, the brand saw a gap in the market for the Kodiaq, which could be just the ticket for big families looking for value for money.
The Kodiaq is a large SUV & is bigger than the brand’s other SUVs, the Kamiq & Karoq. The vehicle is based on VW Group's modular MQB platform, shared with a new generation of Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace & the Seat Tarraco, however, the Kodiaq is longer than Tiguan, & comes in a 7-seat version. Also available is the Kodiaq RS - the brand's flagship model. You can choose the Kodiaq with front or 4-wheel drive, & there’s a range of trim levels to choose from.
If you’re tempted by the plusher, more powerful & pricier versions available in the Kodiaq line-up, you might also be considering models such as the Nissan X-Trail, Kia Sorento or even Land Rover's Discovery Sport. At the lower end of its price scale, the Kodiaq is more of a rival to the larger Hyundai Santa Fe in terms of size.
“With the Škoda Kodiaq, we are striking out in a new direction & opening up new markets. With our first large SUV, we are conquering a new segment for the brand – & new customer groups. Our new addition to the Škoda model range is truly as strong as a bear: it makes the brand even more attractive thanks to its concept, striking design & as the first Skoda that has the option of always being online & thereby offering more comfort, safety & real-time information.The Škoda Kodiaq is at the forefront of Škoda extensive SUV campaign.”
